Swords of Light are a musical tribute to Celtic rock legends Horslips.

Horslips remain one of the seminal bands of Irish music – their fusion of traditional Irish and rock music inspiring many local and international acts. When the band announced early in 2022 that they would no longer be touring or playing gigs the idea for a tribute band was born.

Swords of Light were launched at the 2022 Horslips Convention in front of a delighted audience of Horslips fans which included two members of the band themselves! Comprising 5 musicians and lifelong Horslips fans from Donegal and Derry, their heartfelt mission is to ensure the music of Horslips continues to be heard all over Ireland and beyond.

It’s entirely approproriate that their first Donegal gig should take place here at The Balor, built on the site of the old Butt Hall which hosted the legendary group in days gone by.
